On Wednesday February 21st, activists with Rainforest Action Network are holding a day of action across the country to stop TXU and their dirty financiers.
Lunch-time with Merrill Lynch
What: Billionaires of Coal will convene to show their enthusiastic support (or not) for Merrill Lynch’s lead funding of TXU’s coal-fired power plants, and to spread the message that if coal was good enough for the industrial revolution it’s good enough for us now. Don't agree with the billionaires--come down and show them why.

Why:Dallas-based utilities company TXU is proposing to build 11 new pulverized coal-fired power plants in the country’s leading carbon polluter, Texas. TXU is seeking $11 billion in financing from the world’s largest banks to build its polluting coal power plants. RAN’s Global Finance Campaign is making sure that the bankers on Wall Street and around the world know that they should consider TXU a “No Go Project.”

We'll be targeting the lead financial arrangers of dirty coal development - telling the banks “Stop Funding TXU’s Dirty Energy” and “No New Coal Plants”. We can stop Merrill Lynch and others from funding TXU’s dirty coal plants and push them to support clean, renewable energy.

In San Francisco, we’ll be targeting Merrill Lynch’s offices in the financial district. Please come out and join us!!
